Beetles alone may well represent 90% or more of the biodiversity on Earth. There should be plenty of fodder for discussion here.

Could you post your image below as a new discussion? I have found its ID and it would be useful to have it as a discussion rather than a comment which will soon be buried. If you do not know quite how to do that, may I suggest having a gander at Jimmy's excellent step-by-step video on adding a new discussion to a group:

We found this lovely Lady Beetle last Wednesday at Kouchibouguac, and Ron Arsenault had found it on Milkweed in the Mapleton Park parking lot off Gorge Rd a couple of years ago as well.
